El Brujo: I stayed in Sevilla for a while for school. There are loads of Gypsies down there...real ones (Romani) who trace their race back from India as it crisscrossed it's way through central Europe and down into Spain. They are not white.

Do the Travellers in the UK have any real ties to the Romani? Or are they gypsies in the sense that many 70's rockers were gypsies.

/white trash?


I'm pretty sure they are the decedents of Irish who got booted off their land by Cromwell or someone.

So, why not get a few people with a halfway decent stereo system in their car to play really loud, obnoxious music all day and night?

I'm sure Fark can come up with a suitable playlist.

Teknowaffle: So, speaking of gypsies in general, anywhere else in Europe where the new scam they pull is to go up and down a subway or commuter train, leaving a card on the seat next to you with a picture of a sick person, and text describing their brother or sister with leukemia, and asking for money?


This is a new scam? I've had "deaf" people approach me in parking lots of grocery stores and hand me a card saying "I'm deaf, therefore give me money" for years.

I, somehow, made it through that episode, and stopped maybe half way through the Brian and Stewie locked in the bank vault episode and never went back. Brian eating Stewie's poo was it for me.

This is on an assembly line scale. They put out about 40 cards at a time, collect them, then move a little further up the train and lay them out again.

Additionally, I noticed that there are limping beggars with apparent foot deformities all over (here, Helsinki, and one in Riga). Somehow they all have the exact same gait, as though it was rehearsed. Hell, two of them were a block away from one another in Helsinki.

/Once it gets warm the beggars drift here to northern Europe.

To most people, no, they are not. If you choose to be offended, that's your business of course. You could choose to be offended by the word "paper" -- but don't be surprised if most people find it strange.

My friend's father who is in the Spanish Guardia Civil warned us not to punch a gypsy in the mouth lest you cut your knuckle and contract a blood pathogen.

I really wouldn't mind seeing a return to the days when if you did stupid crap like this they just send in an armored squad of guys to beat the living shiat out of everyone there. You could probably spare the women and children (as long as they didn't get violent themselves)

I'm guessing this is Europe's closest approximation to the white trailer trash we have here in the US?

This article combined with the others I've seen about bands of gypsies taking over and squatting in already owned homes - it's amazing to me how little property laws over there mean. the problem is there hasn't been a single example set. Just one or two times of going over and seriously kicking all their asses and tossing them into the street and squatters and gypsies everywhere would think twice about doing it.

It's not necessarily because of who they are. Trespass is a civil matter, not a criminal one, in Britain. Different processes for handling it than there are here.

tl;dr The British are pansy morans.

You mean squatters? I don't think there is anything quite like it in the US (or at least as common) -- because here it would get you arrested and your vehicles impounded/sold very quickly.
